Round 2: 30 weeks

How far along:  30 weeks.  30!!! That's 3/4 of the way done. 

Baby Size: A loaf of sliced bread or a baseball cap

Weight:  It was down about 1 1/2 pounds but I'm not consistent with when I take it.  Today was probably the most accurate though (before getting dressed and eating in the morning)


  • Restless legs
  • Exhaustion
  • Back pain
  • Reflux
  • Pain in my legs

Maternity Clothes:  Mostly tops still, I've found a few non maternity that work.  Maternity jeans and pants unless they are leggings or yoga pants.  Some of my underwear and a pair of my pajamas are to snug on my hips

Sleep:  I wish I could sleep.  Between restless legs, getting up to pee and a toddler who has been waking up for the last few weeks in the middle of then night I get about 3-4 hours a night.

Cravings/Food Aversions:   I've been loving crunchy peanut butter lately. Still eating lots of triscuts and cheese and all the chocolate!

Belly Button: Out

Rings on or off: On but getting snug

Gender:  It's got to be a boy right?  Logically since everyone else is having boys this baby will be too.

Name:  Girl name we still have to figure out a middle name, boy is set.

Movement:  A lot more.  Rob was able to feel it again. 

Stretch Marks: The belly ones have darkened a lot. 

Best moment:  I had my first night away this past weekend ever since Eleanor was born.  I didn't want the first time to be when we were in the hospital and Rob was with her so I felt good.  I went shopping with my sister and her friend.  Of course it snowed like crazy and all the stores closed and roads were terrible (thankfully we already had the hotel), but it was a nice breather.  I was hoping to get to sleep in a little but nope; still up at 7 am. 

Looking forward to:  Meeting this baby!  

Nervous about:  The birth.  So many ways it could go.  I could go into labor on my own and have a vaginal birth, my water could break and then I never go into labor and need pitocin (like with Eleanor),  I could never go into labor and need a c-section or I could go into labor and the whole process and then still wind up with a c-section.   I'm slightly anxious about it.  My ob gave me vbac consent forms at my last appointment.  Any questions I should ask?

What I miss:  Being able to sit comfortable.  Too far reclined hurts my back, and leaning forward doesn't work so well with the belly.

Labor signs:  I've been having some Braxton Hicks this week.  They aren't really painful (maybe a 2), but slightly uncomfortable. 

Appointments:   December 1st 

Misc. I just found out that my sister will be gone from a few days before my due date until a few days after.  She will be on vacation.  When she told me the dates and I told her that falls around my due date she was super bummed  (she didn't plan the vacation).   It's likely she will miss the first bit of the baby's life.  It's not a big deal because baby won't even know and she can't plan her life around this anyway.

10, 20, 30 weeks this time
